Summary:

Reliable, powerful and easy to maintain: Yamaha

Faults:

Carburator overflows often; I have not been able to get a decent used one in Greece, and new costs 500 Euros;

Temperature gauge does not work, I suspect there is a broken wire or contact, but haven't had the time to check.

General Comments:

This is a very nice on-off road motorcycle, with enough power and very good handling, as long as you are OK with traveling at speeds up to 120 km/h.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
